Claims Industry Lead in Underbody Tank Packages
BAF is spreading the word that it has secured U.S. EPA and California Air Resources Board certifications for its lineup of Ford-platform dedicated-compressed natural gas vehicles for 2013 – with EPA certifications for bi-fuel vehicles.
“With the additional vehicles in the product line, BAF retains its position as the company with the most Ford CNG products available in the industry,” the company says.
“No other company – including the OEMs – produces a deeper CNG product line than BAF,” company president John Bacon said in a Monday release.
‘More Vehicle Platforms than Anyone Else’
“Not only do we have more vehicle platforms than anyone else, we also offer more choices and customizations within each platform,” Bacon said.
BAF boasts the first Ford F-250/350 pickup with an underbody tank package, “giving drivers the use of the full truck bed – something fleets have long desired.” BAF says it continues to boost its R&D efforts and is working on adding Lincoln “black car” vehicles to its lineup to better serve limo markets.
